        The Ad Hoc bulletin (Marxist-Leninist) [13 issues of the newsletter produced by the FBI-financed pseudo-faction in the Communist Party, USA]

      the Committee, Chicago 1976 - Thirteen issues of the photoreproduced bulletin on 8.5x14 inch sheets stapled at upper left corner; length ranges from 9 to 16 pages per issue. Faint horizontal fold crease to all issues, minor toning to the first one. Issues included are vol. 7 nos. 3, 4; vol. 8 nos. 1 [with final page loose but present] and 3, vol. 9 nos. 1 and 2, vol. 10 nos. 1 and 2, vol. 11 no. 1, vol. 14 no. 3, a Special Edition on the Communist Party's 21st national convention in 1975 (this issue in 8.5x11 inch format), and two with inconsistent, divergent numbering, No. 3 vol. 2 (November 1975) and No. 4, vol. 1 (May 1976). The identity of the Ad Hoc Committee has long been unclear; some have claimed it was a secret faction in the Chicago branch of the CPUSA, though one wonders how such an ardently Maoist formation could have tolerated remaining in the CPUSA for so many years. The riddle has been resolved through declassified FBI documents. In the book "Heavy Radicals," Aaron J. Leonard and Conor A. Gallagher transcribe FBI documents showing that the Committee was actually a project of agent S.A. Stallings, designed to disrupt the CPUSA by creating "in the eyes of the CP the existence of a factional grouping within the Illinois district and nationally if possible which adheres to the Chinese interpretation of Marxism-Leninism." These bulletins, which make very passable use of M-L jargon and polemical style, were designed to sow discord and mistrust between revolutionaries with the ultimate goal of weakening the movement. Each issue includes a prominent call for funds to be sent to a PO Box, and it is possible that some of the content was also written and submitted by real believers, published in the pages of the Bulletin for additional verisimilitude.The earliest issue here, from June 1969, includes a piece on "Black liberation and working class solidarity" by the chairman (not named here, but apparently Donald Wright, who went on to disrupt other Marxist-Leninist organizations). For more on the FBI and the Ad Hoc Committee, see "The U.S. Domestic Intelligence Enterprise: History, Development, and Operations" by Darren E. Tromblay, beginning on page 383.

        Of all the Christmas observances we have enjoyed - at the White House, in California, in Florida, and at Camp David - this is without question one of the best" - with 18 word handwritten postscript

      San Clemente, California, January 6, 1976. 7.25" x 10.5". "Typed Letter Signed ""Dick"" with 18 word handwritten postscript, 1 page, 7.25"" x 10.5"". San Clemente, California, January 6, 1976. On stationery engraved ""Richard Nixon / La Casa Pacifica / San Clemente, California."" Handwritten salutation. [To Jack Dreyfus]. Fine condition.In part, ""Dear Jack This is just a note to tell you how deeply touched and appreciative Pat and I were by your thoughtfulness in remembering us at Christmas time. Late in the evening on Christmas Day, sitting around the fireplace in our living room which overlooks the Pacific, we remarked that of all the Christmas observances we have enjoyed -- at the White House, in California, in Florida, and at Camp David -- this as without question one of the best. We were fortunate that the whole family could be together…"" Read the entire in the image above.The former President writes about who was at his second Christmas after resigning: daughter Tricia and son-in-law Ed Cox, daughter Julie and son-in-law David Eisenhower, Irish setter King Timahoe, French poodle Vickie, Yorkshire terrier Pasha, and Manolo and Fina Sanchez, the Nixon's personal house-couple. Manolo did the chores, gardening, repairs, up-keep while Fina did the cleaning and cooking; they both did the shopping.After thanking Dreyfus for his ""delectable fruit cake,"" Nixon handwrites ""When you are down this way we would enjoy having you drop by fir dinner - (Informal - just fun!)""Financier Jack Dreyfus (1913-2009) was the founder of the Dreyfus Fund. In 1964, Life magazine called him the “Maverick Wizard Behind the Wall Street Lion,” in reference to the emblem of his fund and its aggressive marketing. Dreyfus, it said, was “the most singular and effective personality to appear in Wall Street since the days of Joseph Kennedy and Bernard Baruch.” His paternal grandfather was a first cousin of Alfred Dreyfus, the protagonist of the late 19th-century anti-Semitic scandal known as the Dreyfus Affair. Dreyfus sold his mutual fund company in 1970 and established the Dreyfus Health Foundation to pursue other medical applications for Dilantin which had cured his depression in the 1960s. In 2000, Dreyfus said that an account in The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon by Anthony Summers (New York: Viking, 2000) that he gave Dilantin to Richard Nixon in 1968 was correct. Dreyfus said he gave Nixon a bottle of 1,000 capsules of 100 milligrams each ''when his mood wasn't too good,'' and later gave him another bottle of 1,000 capsules."

        American Monument

      1976 - FRIEDLANDER, Lee. The American Monument. New York: Eakins, (1976). Oblong folio, original post-bound blue-gray cloth. $3000.First edition of this comprehensive photographic work on public monuments, one of only 2000 copies, with 213 photogravure plates."Twelve years in the making, The American Monument is almost maniacally inclusive, rounding up everything from Plymouth Rock to a plaque commemorating the Pony Express in Salt Lake City and treating them all with the same deliberate nonchalance. The doggedness of Friedlander’s quest is at once astounding and hilarious Friedlander’s memorials, no matter how solidly anchored, seem adrift, lost in the landscape, unnoticed if not forgotten Tidy arrangements of two, three and four pictures multiply obsessively as the book’s momentum builds; towards the end, there are accumulations of six and nine photos to a page. The result is overwhelming, as it clearly was intended to be. History stalks the landscape at every turn" (Roth, 236). Open Book 310. A fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Facsimile of The Book of Los.

      Clairvaux, Jura, France: by the Trianon Press for the William Blake Trust, London,, 1976. Large quarto. Original tan full morocco, spine lettered in gilt. With the original hand-made marbled slipcase. Colour plates reproducing the original Book of Los. A few light marks to covers, a few spots to fore-edge, an excellent copy. First edition thus, copy II of 32 copies bound in full morocco with an original guide sheet, stencil and copperplate, and a set of extra plates showing progressive stages of the collotype and hand-stencil process, from a total edition of 538 copies, printed on Arches pure rag paper made to match the paper used by Blake. Blake scholar Geoffrey Keynes (1887-1982), the brother of John Maynard, provides a commentary and bibliographical history. "The Book of Los was the first of the two small books executed by Blake mainly as etchings on copper to be printed as ordinary intaglio plates. The Book of Ahania was the companion volume ? The title-pages of both books were dated by Blake 1795, so that they were probably the last ones to be produced in his Lambeth house. Each book exists in only a single copy ? The Book of Los ? has been since 1866 in the British Museum" (Keynes). Only one copy of the Book of Los is known. These beautifully produced facsimiles of Blake are now highly regarded in their own right.
